Category Red Wine
Origin France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Cotes Catalanes
Brand Department 66
Alcohol/vol 15.2%

Appearance: Ruby red with a distinguished brick rim.

Bouquet: The wine offers alluring notes of marion berries, blue fruits, compote, garriuge, and a touch of dried lavender.

Palate: Rich, concentrated dark fruits are immediately noticeable upon entry which transition effortlessly to a piquant mid palate of plum tart, dried spices, and mountain herbs. Persistent acidity juxtaposes the generous core and finishes with a lengthy coda.

The 2016 Côtes Catalanes Others checks in as 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Carignan, and the rest a mix Mourvèdre and Lledoner Pelut that was brought up all in barrel. This cuvée functions as a second wine yet tastes like a top cuvée with its deep, rich black fruits, chocolate, leather, and peppery herb aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, concentrated, and mouthfilling, it's a wine I'd be thrilled to drink.

The 2016 Others is 85% Grenache, with the balance a mix of Syrah and Carignan. Made by Dave Phinney (Orin Swift, The Prisoner), it's matured in older oak for nearly a year. Super ripe, it's plummy and rich, verging on chocolaty in its flavors, with supple tannins and a not-so-subtle warmth on the finish. Drink it over the next few years.
